Mazury

Mazury Dance Company of the Polish YMCA in London was founded in 1949 and today consists of over 120 dancers, singers and musicians in three groups from age 9 upwards. Mazury’s performances over their 60 year history range from charity fundraising and social events to shows at prestigious UK and European venues to audiences of thousands. Mazury have appeared on television in over thirty countries, including Come Dancing and a New Year’s Day musical show, as well as several popular network game shows. They have performed at most of the main London dance venues, taken part in a Ken Russell film, cut an LP record, recorded a CD and participated regularly in such prestige festivals as the Festival of the Pyrenees, Arundel Castle, the Cheltenham Spring Festival, Charleston Manor, the UK Festival of Polish Folklore, the Festival of the Beskid Mountains, and the Festival of Kasubian Culture in Poland.

Mazury have performed for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and several other heads of state, and have entertained the Prince and Princess of Wales. In 1992 Mazury took part in the celebrations in Poland marking its return to a free and independent country, and more recently they represented Poland at the Foreign Office on the occasion of Poland’s entry into the EU. Mazury’s 60th anniversary in 2009 was marked by a sell-out gala performance at the Queen Elizabeth Hall at London’s Southbank centre.
